Hi! I ordered KYB KG-4163 rear shocks for my lifted 1997 Pathfinder XE. When they were installed they had to be installed upside down, because on the shocks the top mount eyelet holes are 12mm and the bottoms are 16mm. The pre-facelift R50's (like mine a '97) are 16mm top and 12mm bottom... so the KYB's I ordered had to be installed upside down (They'd be perfect for post facelift R50's). After doing research I decided to order new shocks, because if I stick with the upside down KYB's they will fill with mud and fail. I am wondering if the famous Bilstein 33-185552's will fit my '97 correctly or am I faced with the same problem as the KYB's? Thanks!
